Russell Wilson & Ciara are finally engaged, but are they finally having sex?


Russell Wilson and Ciara were just in Paris last week for fashion week. I thought it was sort of strange that they both got invited to some events, but I thought maybe Ciara was invited and she just brought Russell as her plus-one. As it turns out, their Paris trip was part of a larger vacation. Russell surprised his girlfriend of about a year with a trip to the exclusive resort North Island in Seychelles. They spent a few days fishing, swimming and having fun, and then Russell proposed. She said yes and they both posted the video after the proposal. You should watch it just to see Ciara flash her absolutely enormous rock (reportedly worth about $2 million).

Well… I’m happy for them, I guess. It’s worth noting that everyone was holding their breath about this one because Russell and Ciara talked very openly about how they weren’t going to have sex at all until they were either engaged or married. I guess Russell is sort of churchy? Like, he wanted people to “pray” for him because he was being tempted to have relations with Ciara and he wanted people to know that he was absolutely not tapping that. Ciara also confirmed the no-sex thing last year, saying she was waiting “until the deal is sealed.” Which I still don’t know if that means engagement or marriage. Like, are they having sex right now, because she’s got the ring? Future gave her a ring too and that didn’t work out so well. Anyway, congrats you two crazy kids.

    Why is everyone so up in arms over whether they’re having sex or not? Celibacy isn’t a new concept. And yes russell is a christian so he doesn’t believe in sex before marriage. I’m very happy for this gorgeous couple!

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I can’t speak for anyone else, but I couldn’t care less whether or not these two have sex. I just don’t want to hear about it. I think his constantly holding up this one “virtue” for the world to admire isn’t about Christianity at all, but about his desire for fame and attention. Sex is a private matter. I’m a Christian, and I think it’s very silly for a man his age to place so much importance on celibacy, but it’s his life. I just wish he would focus a little more on more important virtues instead of constantly harping on this and asking people to pray for him because he wants to have sex. It’s twisted.

      • Bridget says:

        He talks about a ton of other stuff, but this is what gets picked up nationally. Russell is actually a pretty great guy.

      • Locke Lamora says:

        I feel the same, GNAT. I don’t care wheter or not they’re having sex, but talking publically about something so intimate doesn’t sit well with me. And this feels like they’re getting married only to be able to finally have sex.

        The ring is too big and very tacky.

      • Y Colette says:

        How exactly is asking for prayer “twisted”? Even though he was joking (laughing) when he said that.
        If they were getting married just to have sex they could have gotten married months ago,they could have eloped.I didn’t realize saying we are trying to wait until we get married was talking intimately about sex.LMAO

      • Locke Lamora says:

        Saying you’re not having sex is still talking about your sex life publically which to me is still tacky.
        Maybe it’s a cultural thing. I don’t know anyone who waited till mariagge to have sex, and we’re a super Catholic country. I know people who had married the first person they had sex with, but I don’t know anyone who actually lost their virginity on their wedding night.
        Also, talk about religion rarely goes further than “yes, I’m religious”. There was a handball coach recently who talked about Jesus and Mary in a post match interview and everyone thought it was super weird. It was in the media for days.

      • Wren says:

        Agreed, GNAT and Locke. It’s totally tacky to talk about your sex life in public, whether you’re having it or not. Do your thing (or don’t, whatever) but I don’t need to hear about it. I really hate how chastity seems to be the biggest virtue held up and waved around. It’s not heroic for petes sake! It’s a personal choice. If you want to impress me with your virtue, tell me about how you help others, or rescue kittens, or really anything other than where (and when) you do or do not stick your dong.

      • Pri says:

        I just found it odd how he decided to ask her out, he said something to the effect that God told him to save her….

    • qwerty says:

      Sex before marriage is not something you “believe in”. It’s not god or Santa, it’s real.

    • TessD says:

      Because they made it the main point of their relationship that they have been selling to the media.

    • Snappyfish says:

      I think what is odd here is that he has been married before. Unlike Tebow he is no virgin (I don’t actually believe Tebow is either but that’s another story) I do understand wanting to get to know each other before getting physical which is smart. Especially since be has been married & she has a child with another.

      It was an interesting angle to sell to the media

    • DrM says:

      I find it distasteful. It is like this is some sort of ”prize” for putting a ring on her finger. Please. Always better to work out your differences FIRST and ensure that side of your life is compatible before committing to a legal contract that is easy to get into but painful to get out of.

  2. OSTONE says:

    People can choose to do it or not. It’s just weird to me to be fully grown and make your celibacy status known. Them two, Tim Tebow etc. it’s just TMI in my opinion.

    • ichsi says:

      The US-American approach to Christianity is a little foreign to me, so I could be completely wrong here, but whenever someone does that, it feels like piety bragging to me. Look at what a good Christian I AM because I do not do the nasty dirty thing with this beautiful woman. Respect me for my superior morals and discipline. Then again, I don’t get the whole wait until marriage thing in general. Maybe I value sex too high in a relationship, but I wanna KNOW how someone is in the sack before I commit to them, and only them, for what hopefully is a very long time. But yeah, different people, different opinions.

      • Wren says:

        That’s exactly what it is. It’s a way to feel and act superior. Same with “oh she’s so large, I’m totes worried about her health” when talking about an overweight woman. Nope. It’s “I’m better than you and I am doing things (or at least I know how to do things) the Right Way”.

        If it was really a personal choice made for personal reasons, religious or not, it’s not necessary to broadcast it.

      • Collette says:

        He discussed it at his church with his minister.He didn’t go on Howard Stern discussing his sex life. The media focused on this rather than focus on his charity work with Seattle Children’s Hospital.

    • KLM says:

      But “fully grown” people talk about having sex too. I mean he was at a church talk when he said it, it’s not like he sat down with a magzine. Idk, I feel like sex in general is everywhere, so why should someone talking about not doing it be tmi?

    • nina says:

      TMI is talking about which sex position is your favorite, how many sex partners you have, taking pics of your butt and posting it on instagram for all to see.
      Funny no one says the latter is TMI but saying you are celibate or a virgin is TMI? Backwards logic.
      I constantly read interviews with celebs about all kinds of private stuff and honestly, I think it’s refreshing that there are people out there normalizing celibacy because too many think of it as this weird concept attached to an equally weird repressed loner.
      When so many of our young feel pressured to have sex and pose nude I think it’s nice that they see an alternative out there. You are not a weirdo for waiting. There is no timeline when you need to “do it”, each of us have our own path in life.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        I think his belief that sex before marriage is somehow dirty, evil or unChristian is unhealthy. I would want young people to have the option to say no to anything they don’t feel comfortable with, but I’d also want them to have a healthy view of their sexuality. He doesn’t. And honestly, I think there’s more to it than sticking to his beliefs.

      • Yabby says:

        PREACH. Thank you. Just what I needed to read on this fine sunday

      • Valois says:

        I don’t think ceibacy is weird, even though I personally do not really “get it” (sorry for the lack of a better word, I’m not a native speaker)- I mean, it’s a personal decision, who am I to judge?
        But the whole American celibacy culture (purity rings,oaths, pressuring children into it, condeming female sexuality, no Sex ED etd) seems so problematic to me.

      • Bridget says:

        But he doesn’t say it’s dirty or evil anywhere. He basically just says he felt it was important to take sex off the table and see if they could make it work without the clouding their judgement.

      • V4Real says:

        Good Names I don’t think he. said sex was dirty before marriage

      • vauvert says:

        Has he said that he is not having sex before marriage because it is evil, unChristian etc? Because if he actually said that, I agree that I have a problem. If this is just your interpretation, GNAT, then I agree with @nina completely.
        Why are we so ready to accept all the nudie selfies, sex life details, from everyone, celebs and “normals” alike, but if the rare person states their belief in staying celibate until a commitment is reached, that is a problem?
        I believe that both parties share too much, personally. I have been engaged multiple times, had boyfriends since I was a teen, but never felt the need to share the private details with anyone, be it close girlfriends, female relatives or what have you. OTOH, if we as a society now accept this over sharing as the norm, then it should be okay for people to post about it, whether it is celibacy, or not.
        The only thing I object to is the request to pray for him. That was both funny and pathetic. Can I have a general CB prayer to win a lottery here?😂

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Maybe I’m reading too much into it, but to me, if you say your Christian beliefs require you to refrain from premarital sex, you’re saying that premarital sex is wrong. Maybe dirty and evil are too much, but morally wrong. So you are his age, and you have never had a complete relationship. You don’t know so many things about sex and relationships. You might marry for the wrong reasons, confusing lust and love. After you’re married and the passion changes, as it will, you might feel you’ve missed out, or blame your partner because you don’t know that that’s just the nature of sex. In many important ways, you’re still a child. Immature. It’s his life, as I said, but I don’t think it’s a good example of a healthy sexuality or a healthy relationship, and it irritates me that he is held up as “virtuous.”

      • Bridget says:

        GNAT this is actually his second marriage. His first wife was unhappy with Russell’s ultra focus on football during the season and was also rumored to have stepped out on him because of that. Not to mention, she had a really hard time with his superstar status here in Seattle. Sexual compatibility is important, but there’s a lot of ‘special’ factors in this relationship that are going to have to last way beyond the lust phase.

      • paleokifaru says:

        @GNAT WilsOn is divorced and Ciara had a child out of wedlock. So they’ve had sex with other partners. They’ve said they were doing this because other relationships hadn’t worked and they felt that sex had clouded their judgment. No one said anything about it being dirty. Just that they wanted to make sure the connection was real and deep in other areas. Not a choice I’ve made but one that I can appreciate and I don’t think it sends a bad message.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Ok, obviously I don’t know everything about his past. I think the core of my irritation comes from two of my neices who are all purity ring we are the most virginal of the virgins. Maybe I overreacted to this guy. I just hate that whole movement. Everyone should wait to have sex until they are ready and comfortable, but this whole show offy puritanical wearing your virtue on your shoulder thing just rubs me the wrong way.

      • Bridget says:

        @GNAT: Russell Wilson is one of the good ones.

      • Kelsey says:

        Bridget I’m in Seattle too!

      • Wilma says:

        Dude, anything people who are not my close intimate friends tell me about their sex life is TMI to me. I’m not a prude, but I am a private person and I cringe for these people. This is what I now associate Ciara with, same as with Sting and whatever tantric thing he does.

    • Crumpet says:

      I see it as promoting celibacy as something you can do if you choose. I think it’s being a good example.

  3. OriginallyBlue says:

    I like them together and he seems really good with her son. I hope it sticks and they both are happy.

  4. Lucy2 says:

    Whatever works for them is up to them, but why tell everyone about it?
    That ring looks gigantic!

  5. KLM says:

    I’m happy for them. All the disrespect and salt that was thrown their way – especially towards Ciara for daring to move on – they endured it, ignored it and I hope they continue to be happy. Congrats to them.

  6. COSquared says:

    I’m probably the only who smells a thirst trap with these 2.

    • Kitten says:

      Not alone. “I feel complete” is like, post-marathon level thirst.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Nope, it reeks of loooookkkk at meeeeeeee

    • paleokifaru says:

      That’s my issue with them. I couldn’t care less about the celibacy talk since I’ve never heard them heard them condemn sex at all. That’s just their call. But generally I think they’re very attention seeking, not unlike many other celebrities but some just seem to go out of their way more. That said, my family lives in Seattle and I do appreciate all the attention Wilson brings to charities and that he really is committed to giving. So at least the thirst is doing some good in the world. Can’t say that about a lot of other celebs.

  7. PinaColada says:

    I have always liked Ciara’s music. I think she is SO BEAUTIFUL I’d probably be speechless if I saw her in person.

  8. Patricia says:

    I’m in agreement with those who say that we just don’t need to hear about this couples sex life.
    I’m not for airing your bedroom laundry, whether dirty or clean, to the public. Why do we need to hear about their sex life at all? it seems immature and thirsty for them to go on about it.

    But besides that, good luck to them in their marriage. I always hope for the best for a newly engaged couple!

  9. Bridget says:

    After the whole debacle with Future, I can understand why Ciara would want to be in a relationship and take things slow. Especially since Russell is well known to pour all of his focus into his job during the football season, which was a huge issue for his first wife.

    He’s famous around town for visiting the Children’s Hospital every Tuesday, and Ciara usually accompanies him. Folks that work there have nothing but the nicest things to say about them – and apparently Ciara’s body is just insane in person.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      How is getting engaged after a year taking things slow? It seems pretty quick to me.

      • Bridget says:

        One person’s slow is another person’s fast. A celibate year? I’ll call that taking things slowly, especially since they’re both adults and have clearly been on the marriage track the whole time. She relocated to Seattle last year and they still made it through the football season (a huge issue for his ex wife). Wilson’s a little over media trained (he’s notorious about preparing for everything, of course he would do that too), but if that’s the worst we can say about him I think that’s pretty good.

        This one really seems to bug you, Locke.

      • Locke Lamora says:

        It’s not bothering me at all, I barely know who she is and I’ve only heard of him on this site ( I’m European), and every time they’ve been covered was in relation to their decision not to have sex. I don’t find celibacy weird, but talking about it I find very tacky. Different strokes for different folks.

  10. qwerty says:

    Proud of posing with a dead animal’s body. Sad.

  11. Huckle says:

    Why a thirst trap? Social media and the younger generation is all about “look at me.” They’re both already famous and successful in their respective careers too. For me it equates to shouting it from the rooftops. Who doesn’t want to do that when you’re happy and in love? They make a gorgeous couple, and a cute little family.

    • Kitten says:

      “Who doesn’t want to do that when they’re happy and in love?”

      *slowly raises hand*

      • paleokifaru says:

        I’m with you. My husband and I aren’t even on Facebook and never have been. Which is not to say we didn’t gush over each other when we were falling in love but we did so with people who really matter to us and not the world at large. We’re just a lot more private than other folks in their 30s and we’re even more baffled by the younger generation. And it’s for a variety of reasons. I was a TA for several years as social media boomed and I thought it was a bad idea for my students who were already close to my age to be able to peek into my life. And my husband was a young dad and later a young divorcee whose ex blasts everything about their kid, including embarrassing stories, so he wanted to offer more privacy for him. But we wouldn’t have made those decisions if we weren’t just generally private in the first place.

      • Locke Lamora says:

        *also raises hand*

        I’m a “millenial” amd I’m not on any social media. Shouting from the rooftops about your love life is always annoying.

      • Wren says:

        *raises hand too*

        Facebook actually started advertising divorce lawyers to me BEFORE I got married, I think because I barely interact with my husband on FB and we never really have. We tag each other in a few pictures and that’s pretty much it. No gushing “mah hubby iz sooooo great!!!” posts, no shouting anything from the rooftops. I post more pics of my animals than I do of him.

    • Magnoliarose says:

      Me either. I avoid social media usually and have no plans to change. I do the bare minimum for family and friends sporadically but that’s it. I would not do what they did.

  12. vauvert says:

    Congrats to them, and best wishes.
    I defend their whole “waiting until marriage or engagement” just like I defend anyone who jumps in it… Whatever works.
    BUT I don’t understand why you have a videographer there to capture a private moment. So much thirst. You either ruin a surprise and really personal moment (unless a guy with a camera is always following you around) or you had to go and do it a second time, for the camera’s sake. Either way, blah.

    • Crumpet says:

      I have a coworker who proposed to his girlfriend and had a friend photographing it. It was very sweet – the friend wandered around trying to look casual while my coworker worked up to the proposal. Now they will forever have photographs of that moment (which was a complete surprise to the girlfriend). It’s not for everyone, maybe, but some people want photographs or videos of that moment. I have no problem with it.

  13. kibbles says:

    They are a good-looking couple – Russell should go shirtless more often – and I think he might really be the one or at least offer Ciara many more years of stability than her past lovers. I just don’t think someone’s sex life or lack thereof is anyone’s business, but that is the problem with celebrities today. It’s perfectly fine to wait a year to have sex, but they were eager for the world to know about this because they love the attention. Anyway, at least Russell seems to be a decent guy compared to the other guys she’s been with.

  14. lisa2 says:

    Celibacy is fine. But having a sexual relationship with your partner if you are able is very important to a relationship. It will be very sad for them if after they finally consummate their relationship they find that things are not in-sync. Many a relationship has ended because the sex was not good. It is not everything; but it does matter.

  15. Size Does Matter says:

    I Just Wish She Knew How To Properly Use Capital Letters.

  16. word says:

    Ughhh who cares about their “sex life”. Why do we even know that they haven’t “done it” yet? Why did they even make that public? I don’t want to know a damn thing about a celeb’s sex life…it should stay private. The only thing anyone talks about regarding these two is their sex life though they both have careers. I guess Ciara’s music career has been diving for years though…so now she’s just known for this?

  17. Ellie says:

    It’s So Annoying When People Type Like This. Agree with the people saying who cares if they’re having sex, I think they’re talking about the lack thereof so much (if it’s true) for attention because this is the most news exposure either have gotten in years.

  18. SpareRib says:

    Sex isnt ‘dirty’ or something to judge others for doing. Cool, you dont want to have sex before marriage (your lose). Dont worry about others having a sex life. Sex is the reason we are all here, dont try to deny that.

  19. d says:

    Is this the same Ciara that did O, ft Missy Elliot? She looks so different.

  20. racer says:

    I need clarification. Are they just not having intercourse before marriage? Because there are other ways to have sex and I seriously doubt they’ve been together this long and only exchanged bodily fluids from kissing. Also, this is a PR relationship. It seems manufactured.

    • Collette says:

      Well since I have been following their relationship for the last year.I believe it is a real relationship.I don’t believe Ciara would get her family,specifically her father and son,intertwined in a fake relationship.I dont believe Russell’s family would spend so much with Ciara if if was fake.Also I don’t think Russell would get Ciara involved in his work at the Children Hospital in Seattle if it was fake.He is too passionate and dedicated to those kids,the nurses,staff etc to get them involved in a fake,PR relationship.

      • racer says:

        You’re probably right. Manufactured relationships are as old as time and most couples just don’t dedicate themselves to making it look natural.

  21. Hola says:

    She has chopped off too much of her nose..

    • Collette says:

      I think she looks better with the nose job and and contoured makeup.Although I think she looks better when she is heavier but she dances better at this size.

  22. Deedee says:

    It’s nobody’s business but theirs. Stop making it news.

  23. Celia says:

    She is so gorgeous. That’s all.

  24. jferber says:

    I can’t think of a more gorgeous couple at this moment. Can’t wait to see pics of the wedding. I think Ciara chose a really good guy this time. I hope her ex will chill with all his fame-whoring nasty talk about her. He’s certainly made bank by bad-mouthing Ciara. He’s getting publicity and becoming better known/working with famous people since his harassment of Ciara. I can’t deny that Future is sexy as hell (yes, I admit it), but Ciara would have been better off just hitting it and quitting it. As a man, Future is pathetic. I also think Russell Wilson is hot as hell, too, and a far better human being, a true gentleman who knows how to treat a lady.

  25. The Original Mia says:

    I’m happy for them and couldn’t care less if they are having sex. It’s their relationship.

  26. Sean says:

    Not unless she grew a penis, they aren’t.

  27. Reece says:

    Quite frankly I never ever needed to know whether or not they are/were/will be having sex.

  28. LAK says:

    I find this relationship amusing because they are telling us that no sex yet she’s walking around with no clothing on, something she didn’t do in her previous relationships. Talk about tempting him!!!! I guess he finally caved and proposed and they can finally have god sanctioned sex and she can put her clothes back on.

  29. Queenie says:

    I thought sex before marriage was forbidden in Christianity… In the Christian Bible. I don’t understand what’s wrong with being open about abstinence. If someone says they don’t judge others because of their faith, or that they don’t eat pork, or don’t drive on Saturday, or wear a scarf… It’s not PC to find that offensive. It seems like everyone brings their own issues to the matter regarding his decision to wait. I think if we can celebrate a person’s decision to transition, or adopt, or surrogate, or celebrate curves or walk for a cure or whatever else brings them joy and harms no one, it’s oddly hypocritical to take issue with a couple celebrating their decision to save sexual intimacy for their marriage. I think he’d catch less flack if he said it was for fear of STDs. It seems like attributing it to his faith is the real issue and that feels really discriminatory.

  30. Babsie says:

    So let me get this straight…the media asks people like Tebow and Wilson about their sex lives, they answer and it becomes a media driven story, yet they’re the ones flaunting it? Why don’t we blame the real culprits – the reporters and columnists who keep bringing it up? Congrats to these two. If they want to be celibate and find religion, that’s they’re business.

  31. wow says:

    My goodness they are one gorgeous couple!

    I’ll admit that it makes me nervous when anyone, especially a woman, says they feel complete due to someone else. You should “complete” in your own right without needing someone else;to do it for you. I blame “Jerry McGuire” for that line.

  32. Breakfast Margaritas says:

    God she is beautiful. I love this buttery Brown/blonde thing she has going on with her hair. I’m glad she is finally getting her Prince charming. She deserves love.

  33. Caz says:

    THIS is what Kim & Kanye think they look like.

    Dream on.

  34. cd3 says:

    These two are smoking hot together. I only care about when they have sex, so that the perv in me can picture it.
